Bio: Addie is a 2017 graduate of the University of Virginia (UVA) with a B.A. in English and 2017 recipient of UVA's Rachel St. Paul Poetry Prize. In 2019, she will be a Fulbright Student Fellow teaching English and leading a creative writing workshop in Brazil. She was an assistant teacher of poetry and a camp counselor for the summers of 2016 and 2017 at the UVA Young Writers’ Workshop. This year of 2018, she took time away from institutional education and danced as a semi-pro cheerleader for a local arena football team, worked a handful of various odd jobs in customer service and childcare, toyed with hobbies old and new, and realized how much she loves and misses institutional education.
